No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you; the waters have indeed parted!
This incredible “sunken” bridge in the Netherlands provides visitors with a one-of-a-kind way to access a beautiful 17th-century Dutch fort. A series of fortresses and moats were built along the West Branbant Water Line in the 17th century. These were constructed to protect the residents from invasions by Spain and France. Fort de Roovere, for example, was surrounded by a shallow moat that was too deep to march across but too shallow for boats to float on. It was protected until two architects, Ro Koster and Ad Kil, designed the Moses Bridge.
